As I walked around my local craft store last week, I noticed little Halloween displays all over the store.  Almost all of them had candy corn.

 I spent the rest of that trip repeating to myself, “You do not need candy corn!  You do not need candy corn!”

I guess you can see why I jokingly refer to candy corn as Halloween Crack!

Mellowcreme pumpkins?

One bag of those + me = sugar coma.  Danger, danger, danger!

I created an homage to those last year with my Mellowcreme Pumpkin Earrings.

To continue the homage to my favorite Halloween candies, how about a candy corn hat?  It’s easier on your teeth, works up in a jiffy and isn’t particularly hard on your yarn stash, either!

It sure as heck is easier than taking candy from a crafter baby!

You’ll need:

  • small amounts of worsted yarn in bright orange, white and bright yellow (Red Heart used in example)
  • J hook

Round 1: With white, ch 4, 11 dc in fourth ch from hook.  Join with sl st at top of beg ch 3.  (12 dc)

Round 2: sl st to the sp between the next two dc , ch 3, dc in same sp (cluster).  (2 dc) in between each dc around. (12 clusters)

Round 3: sl st to the sp between the next cluster , ch 3, 2 dc in same sp.  (3 dc) in between each cluster around. Finish off white. (12 clusters)

Round 4: With orange, join with sl st between any cluster.  ch 3, 3 dc in same sp, ch 1, (4 dc, ch1) in between each cluster around. (12 clusters)

Round 5 – 10: sl st to ch 1 space, ch 3, 3 dc in same sp, ch 1, (4 dc, ch1) in between each cluster around. (12 clusters), finish off orange at end of round 10.

Round 11:  join yellow in any stitch, ch 1, hdc in same st and each st around, including ch 1 sps.

Round 12: ch 1, hdc in same st and each st around.

Round 13: ch 1, hdc in same st , (2 hdc in next st, 1 hdc in next st), repeat ( ) around.   Finish off.

Easy as candy!

      I love it, too! This one went out to my Halloween swap partner. It’s easy and super fast to make up.

      Now, I just need to do a post with the pattern modifications I did for the Christmas hat!
